While we wait for the judges to put their finishing touches on their selections of winners for the 2022 Architectural Photography Awards, we thought it would be fun to comb through the submissions ourselves!
There are so many stunning photographs that have been submitted this year, and we are eager to show off the sheer amount of talent here, so we’ve decided to introduce a new bonus category in the meantime:
The Editor’s Choice Award
We’ve gone through all of the entries separately from the judges and selected our 10 favorite photographs from each category, which we’ve listed here in alphabetical order. While no trophy or cash is awarded for this bonus announcement (this year, at least!), we hope you have a blast looking through these beautiful entries, and know they will whet your appetite for the judges’ selection of winners!
Please note that these selections have no basis on the outcome of the original contest – inclusion here does not mean an entry is more or less likely to win in the judged contest, and vice versa. We were so blown away by the entries that we wanted to share our own personal favorites, and the judges choices may be different! It is honestly so humbling to look through all of these entries and realize the incredible quality of architectural photography all around the world.
Out of courtesy for the judges’ schedules, we’ve extended the date that we plan to announce the winners. You can expect to hear about the finalists at the beginning of April. So, while you hang tight for just a little while longer, here are the APALMANAC favorites from this year’s contest:
